Daily Log

June 30, 1972

In the morning, three men continued to excavated through the brown soil in T-19 E/44-46 down to the level of the tile fall layer to the north, approximately 65 cm below topsoil.  The brown soil is full of small, chipped rocks, tile fragments (2 cassetti), bones, and pottery sherds - mostly impasto with some bucchero.  The concentration of pottery in this area (south of the tile fall) continues to be very heavy.

The men then proceeded to take down the N-S dike at T-19 E-G/42 ( see profile opposite p. 1 ).  The brown soil at the top is full of small chipped stones, bones, terracotta fragments, frieze plaque fragments (including the first certain horserace frieze from this area) and a fairly heavy concentration of pottery.

In the afternoon, the men cleaned T-19 G-I/45-46 below the tile fall to a layer of tiles - perhaps a continuation of the first - approximately 60-70 cm below topsoil.  The tiles are not as concentrated as the tile fall, but are scattered sporadically throughout the area.

The soil here contains tile fragments, chipped stones, a few bones, and pottery sherds - mostly impasto.  The amount of pottery is not nearly as great as that found in the area directly south.  This area produced two bowls with nearly complete profiels, a fragment of gorgon antefix, and many antefix backer fragments ( ).

  • 6 cassetti of tiles discarded.
  • 1 cassette of pottery
  • 1/4 cassette of bones
